Orlando Pirates have confirmed the signing of a batch of new players as well as a number of departures as they build towards the new season.
Bucs ended the 2021/22 DStv Premiership campaign in sixth place under the stewardship of Fadlu Davids and Mandla Ncikazi.
Davids has since departed the club, and leaves alongside Kwanda Mngonyama, Abel Mabaso, Justice Chabalala, Elson Sithole, Wayne Sandilands and Thabang Monare.
But joining the side are Evidence Makgopa, Bienvenu Eva Nga, Miguel Timm and Azola Matrose.
Sandilands, meanwhile, may be offered a role within the Bucs coaching structures.
Part of a club statement read: “Orlando Pirates Football Club is pleased to confirm the signing of Evidence Makgopa, Bienvenu Eva Nga, Miguel Timm and Azola Matrose.
“The quartet will form part of preseason preparations which commence this week.”
The statement continued: “Sandilands’ contract comes to an end on June 30 and will not be renewed however, the Club is currently in discussions with Management regarding another role at the Club.
